If you live in an area with reduced cellular/internet connectivity, please make sure to register your land line phone (if applicable) in addition to cellular devices. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.

The CodeRED system will provide City and County officials with a reliable, easy-to-use interface to quickly disseminate critical information to our citizens during emergencies. It's technology enhances our emergency preparedness plans. The City/County uses the system to notify residents in specific geographic locations of emergencies such as fires, floods, Amber Alerts and other critical announcements such as boil water notices, shelter in place and evacuation information.

The CodeRED system is imperative to the City and County’s emergency planning and communications outreach to citizens by using the system capabilities to send telephone calls, text messages, emails and social media in an effort to effectively inform residents to protect life and property. 

“We need all residents to take the time to update their information,” said Homeland Security & Emergency Management Director Steve Hensley. “The success of this system is dependent upon citizens entering their information. The more accurate contacts we have, the better we can notify County residents of emergencies.”

The CodeRED App can be downloaded for free from the iPhone App store and the Android Google Play store.
